Default Bill Williamson

Dad got wacked in the rear driving his H.P. Scooter last Tuesday riding in the bike lane. He was very lucky that he came out with only a broken leg bone above his knee. The helmet took a beating when he got thrown off but it saved him from head trauma. They put a few straight screws ( he refused Phillips heads ) to piece him back together. All went well and is now in rehab with no computer till he is able to stand on it then he can go home, so chasing the nurses around has been a daunting task. He told me now he can upgrade to the newer faster model but will always wear his lucky helmet. He sounds great and buster t is in good hands

Glad to hear all will be OK. Did he have to supply his own straight-blade screwdriver?

I also hope brother Bill makes a quick recovery !!!!!!! I was begining to wonder why I haven't seen any of his posts for the past few days. I know this will be tough on Buster T as well. I hope they will be able to take Buster T to visit Bill while he is in rehab. Thanks Mitch for letting us know.

He is a tough bird, and a lucky one. I will add him to my prayer list. That sounds like several months of rehab. Maybe the new model scooter gets a bicyclists" strobe light, they are more visible.

This worried some of us here in Fresno. My shop is about 8 miles from his house,
and he'd show-up here and another shop just South on me. His scooter has a
range of 35 miles.

It's not Willie(Bill),.....it's the majority of dip-sxxts drivers in this city. They squash
a lot of people.....and the "hit and run" is rampant!

This guy is too frail,..and this is no BS,...to be going one on one with a car!

That really sucks. We have a lot of marked bike lanes on the Minneaoplis streets, but a lot of driver's ignore that they are bike lanes.

Glad to hear Bill's doing better. I had no idea those scooters could go 35 miles. That's good for battery power. Bill might have to soup up his next one with a gas engine to get out of the way of stupid drivers. I wonder if Bill's scooter did have any flashing LED lights on the rear?

Oh, gee, tell him God Bless and prayers for a speedy recovery...

Also, if we all tossing to $5-$10 and if there was someone who could deliver it, a cheap Tablet pc might cheer him up. And not sure if I can last that long with his humor. I'm in for $10.

Sense moving to Georgia I have not kept as close of ties as I should have with my brother Bill and nephew Mitch. I will have to do a better job especially with Bill, I need to convince him that his Sons Of Anarchy days are behind him. But the biggest surprise is to find out Purdy is my brother as well and only a stones throw away! Very small world we live in.

Glad to hear Bill is in good spirits which can win for him over half of his battle ........ but .......... on second thought ....... with Bill in good spirits, this may cause a very serious problem ...................... maybe the nurses may not want to discharge Bill & want to keep him longer to splurge on his daily wit.

We are all with you Bill!

Hi family

Hi Dusty, Thanks brother for the thought !!!!!!! We are all hoping for the Best for Bill And Buster T. Little dogs that are kept close tend to grieve for their master if very much time passes that they don't see them. This sounds serious for Bill at his age and rehab could take a while. Hoping for the best and a quick recovery.
